Developed in partnership with over 75 schools, this guide makes it easier and more effective for teams of teachers to engage in professional development using the Compare & Contrast strategy. Included in the guide are activities, sample lessons, student work examples, planning forms and learning tools. This PLC Guide takes you and your colleagues on a "guided tour" of the Compare and Contrast strategy, enabling you to: explore the principles and classroom phases that make it such an effective strategy; experience a model lesson using the strategy and learn from sample lessons; plan a complete lesson using the strategy; reflect deeply on your lesson and expand your use of the strategy; and examine student work at various levels of proficiency, and use your findings to plan next steps in building students' comparative analysis skills.
